Accuracy and Validity of Content

a: All data and information provided on this site is for informational purposes only. Classical-Crossover.co.uk makes no representations as to accuracy, completeness, correctness, suitability, or validity of any information on this site and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its display or use. All information is provided on an as-is basis.

b: All articles are correct at the date of creation, if the article is referring to a past event it will be branded with the date that it was originally made. Classical-Crossover.co.uk works hard to try to ensure articles remain up to date. Unfortunately the Classical Crossover genre is always in transition as artists gain and lose contracts. With the sheer number of articles on the website it will not always be possible for us to update everything instantly unless made aware of an inaccuracy directly. We therefore cannot accept liability for any out of date or inaccurate information that may change or prove inaccurate after the initial creation date of the article.

c: In reference to point b, we may choose to launch an article at a date later than creation to coincide with planned events or as result of delays from our workload; we only guarantee it was correct at the time of creation. And we reserve the right to include any article on the site at our discretion regardless of content. E.g. an interview may be posted months after the interview took place, and would remain even if details had changed. We will always strive to ensure the information is as accurate as possible.

d: Mistakes are a part of life and can and will likely occur on this website at some time or another. Any mistakes are pure accidents and are not done to hurt anyone. As soon as we are made aware of a mistake, and have confirmed the inaccuracy, we will correct it.

 

External Links

a: This website links to many external websites, however we will not link to any inappropriate content nor do we give bias to any artists over another in their content. All artists if accepted onto the website will be given a profile and this profile will link to any suitable external websites attached to the artist. We reserve the right to choose whether to link to any third party groups affiliated with the artist, e.g. managers, labels etc. In all cases we would require the artist or immediate representative to contact us if you would like us to consider adding an additional link to a profile. We are not required to add anything; changes and additions will be made at our discretion only.

b: As noted in the first section mistakes can occur; it is always possible we may post an inaccurate link to a website that contains possibly offensive material. We do try to correct any mistakes quickly and have ongoing checks against this, but we cannot accept liability for any material on another website which offends you, simply because you found the link on our website initially.

 

Photographs and Images

The majority of the images on this website are images taken from the public domain or provided by the artists themselves. If however you wish an image removed, in the first instance you should contact us with the proof of your copyright ownership and request us to remove the image. We will be happy to comply once ownership has been confirmed.

This website is a profile site which primarily displays the opinion of the Editor and writers and is not intended to malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company or individual, or anyone or anything.

b: In our aim for unbiased reporting on the various artists of the genre we place profiles of many artists on the website. These profiles show the opinion of the editor only and where possible will only display as 'facts' when the facts have been confirmed. Classical-Crossover.co.uk cannot and will not post propaganda for an artist. Announcement sources will have to be confirmed to our satisfaction prior to being added to the website.

c: If an artist requests an interview or article to be posted they do so in the understanding that any interview or article once created will be solely owned by Classical-Crossover.co.uk and they accept that we may print it at our discretion at a time of our choosing in a manner that we see fit. Any editing or alteration of the article is also at our discretion. We will not accept any amendments or abridgements to the article unless a 'fact' listed in the article has changed and we have been supplied proof of the change to our satisfaction. At no time will we ask further permission to post the article or interview.

d: In addition Classical-Crossover.co.uk retains ownership of any voice recordings or correspondence taken during the interview and may choose to publish them at their discretion if an artist attempts to censor or prevent an article from being published after acceptance of this agreement.

e: Classical-Crossover.co.uk is responsible for the content of the website only. We are not responsible for any groups or interests mentioned, described or discussed in the articles present on the website.

Everything is solely the reflection of the website owner's opinion and does not claim authority, nor does it claim to be fact.

No part of this website may be reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed, or made into a derivative work without the express permission of Adam Tilley or Nicola Jarvis.

Any content taken from this website without the site owner's permission, and/or depicted as your own work, is plagiarism/theft and is considered a criminal offence.

We continually monitor this site both independently and with a variety of online tools to locate plagiarised content and will pursue any breaches to the full extent of the law.

We therefore advise that if you want to use anything on this site, that you first seek permission, and that you must be willing to link whatever you take, back to its original source, here on classical-crossover.co.uk.

---

All content regarding artists is provided free to all. Free publicity we believe helps strengthen the community. As part of this an artist must accept that, once on the website, they have no right to alter, amend or adjust content. We will consider requests but we are under no obligation to change, alter or delete any content at yours or anyone’s whim.

All artists agree and understand by agreeing to have an article or interview published they are passing ownership of that content to Classical-Crossover.co.uk to publish when and how they see fit. Regardless of their personal feelings or thoughts on the final article they cannot claim defamation or fault with Classical-Crossover.co.uk for its inclusion on the website.

If an artist requests for all information referring to them be removed from the website, and we agree to this course of action (which we are under no obligation to do) then it will be performed in the following steps:

  1. All primary articles will be deleted and replaced with a message advising we have been asked to remove all content. If any threats were made these will be included in the message.
  2. All secondary articles referring to the original articles will be removed.
  3. At a time of our deciding or as agreed we will then remove the final announcement created.


As previously noted we only accept responsibility to monitor the content of the articles we create. Any messages posted by fans in the comments or forums after, during or prior to the deletion point are not the responsibility of Classical-Crossover.co.uk, its subsidiaries, staff, owners or affiliates and will not be included in the deletion process.

Please be aware once this process is completed any accounts created for the artist will be blocked, also the artist will never be re-added to the website if they change their mind at a later point.

We will only ever present the truth in our statements and so will not accept any liability for any detrimental response an artist receives as a response to their decision to threaten or intend harm upon the classical-crossover.co.uk website or its owners/affiliates, which works tirelessly and freely to aid all artists of the genre.

Finally, if a court case is ever taken against us we will vigorously defend our position and will not consider settlement when we are not at fault. We will also counter sue and claim back all fees and counter sue for damages due to the stress and difficulties caused, upon the conclusion of the case. In addition we will make all records publicly available so the case is completely transparent and all fans and onlookers have full awareness of exactly what has occurred to cause the case to come to court.
